Three In A Row

WIN: get 3 in a row (or if full have more squares)

TO GET A SQUARE: get your dice to match the rules on a square

You get 4 dice, and can roll 5 times, selecting which dice to keep or reroll

"IF" you cannot get a square, you lose your turn

The "computer" can be played by someone else, or you can play the computer... feel free to "cheat" if you dont't like losing ;)

(Sorry, no automatic computer player)

... this game is actually fun to play, even if you are playing both sides :)

I had this idea i had to put to code before i lost it...

The idea is this... like a mini yahtzee game, each square has a yatzee style goal/target to win... by rolling 4 dice 4 times... i am still testing the odds so then the exact figures may get tweaked... (i may have to up it to 5 rolls) if a player cannot play, must skip turn (turn is over)

Then the idea is that each player starts with 100 (money/points)... and at level 1 both players pay 1 into pot each time anyone starts a turn.. once a player gets 3-in-a-row, that player wins the pot, and the round# goes up, and the board is cleared with new random targets

... the idea sounds cool... the trick is to make it playable and fun ;)

BTW, for the image of the game last posted, computer won... rolled in the first roll what it needed to win :/

Thanky :) i worked really hard tweaking and changing things until it came to this version ...

One could possibly make a real life version... get a set of card stock to make some more balanced sets of game cards, and dice... each card would need to be balanced and maybe the rules tweaked so it would be easier to get to a win... also i would forgo scoring and just play to win...

Too bad that real board games arent as popular anymore ..
